Sweet Corn Succotash Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 cups fresh green peas
    1 tablespoon canola oil
    1 thick slice of bacon, finely diced
    1 small onion, finely chopped
    1/2 pound okra, sliced 1/2 inch thick
    3 medium tomatoes—peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped
    3 ears of corn, kernels cut off
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1/4 cup slivered basil leaves

Directions

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the peas until tender, 5 minutes. Drain, reserving 3/4 cup of the cooking liquid.
  2. In a deep skillet, heat the oil. Add the bacon and cook over moderately high heat, until browned. Add the onion and cook until just softened.
  3. Add the okra and cook for 8 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes and corn and cook until the tomatoes break down. Add the peas with the cooking liquid and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the butter and basil; serve.
